Greenbelt, MD (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
TrainACE, a Washington, DC area based IT and Cyber Security training company, has added new classes to its list of approved VA and GI Bill offerings. TrainACE believes that the expanded GI Bill training class offering can even further help US Military Veterans meet the demands of today’s hyper-competitive IT and Cyber work environment.
The list of classes that TrainACE has provided has always been focused around the DoD 8570 Directive, which in the Washington, DC Cyber Security job market, is a mandate that affects the majority of the workforce. Since the area’s IT workforce is focused so much around Government and DoD contract companies, as well as direct Government agencies, a majority of people in the area are obligated to meet the 8570’s demand. This demand includes possessing IT certifications that match the tasks of a given job role. TrainACE’s list of classes has included 8570 certifications such as CompTIA A+, Network+ and Security+. Other job roles can obligate someone to achieve certifications such as the Microsoft MCSA and Cisco CCNA, both of which are on the list of GI Bill approved classes. More recently, TrainACE has expanded the list of approved classes to include the wildly popular Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification.
The expansion of the Veterans Affairs and GI Bill approved class list is due to TrainACE’s commitment to helping the surrounding Washington area (including Maryland and Virginia) to meet the stringent demands of the 8570 mandate. With recent turmoil in the Government budget, sequestration and the shutdown have caused many people to lose their jobs. Not meeting the demands of the 8570 Directive is another reason people can lose their IT and Cyber Security jobs. TrainACE CEO, Ralph P. Sita, Jr., CPA had this to say about the expansion of GI Bill approved classes: “The IT and cyber job markets are far competitive enough, the recent Government turmoil has made it more so. We dedicated a great deal of effort over the last two years to creating a robust list of classes that Veterans would be eligible to take under their GI Bill benefits. We hope that these offerings can help bolster the job security of some of our Nation’s local Veteran workforce.”
TrainACE and its Cyber Security training focused branch, Advanced Security, have been training IT professionals since 2001. TrainACE has locations in both Ashburn, Virginia and Greenbelt, Maryland and also offers online training classes.
